The Mustang GT-R concept was painted in bright Valencia Orange - inspired by the famous Grabber Orange 1970 Mustang Boss 302 Trans-Am race cars (the Yellow Mustangs) piloted by race legends, including Parnelli Jones. The GT-R is a technological showcase that, when peeled back, reveals a number of existing or production-feasible racing parts.

The one off special that was the Ford Mustang GT-R concept was used to develop and showcase Ford Racing parts available for the Mustang through Ford dealerships.

The front end of the GT-R concept is a further evolution of the Mustang GT coupe and convertible concepts that stole the 2003 North American International Auto Show and foreshadowed the design of the 2005 Mustang. The Mustang GT-R features the classic pony in the grille, surrounded by modern materials like carbon fiber as well as advanced aerodynamic treatments like ground-hugging front and side splitters.

Inside the Mustang GT-R concept the instrument panel preserves the dramatic styling of the 2005 Mustang in a carbon fiber application for racing. In anticipation of another trend, designers chose a Formula One-style steering wheel with most vehicle controls and gauges integrated, including the tachometer, gear selections, telemetry and warning signals. Only the oil pressure and water temperature gauges are located on the instrument panel.

The Mustang GT-R features Ford Racing’s 440-horsepower "Cammer" crate engine that already is available to grassroots racers, and can be tuned to produce more than 500 horsepower under certain race series rules. Last year, a tuned 505-horsepower version of the "Cammer" notched world-class performance and endurance credentials by powering a Focus Daytona Prototype to victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona race.

In December 2010 Ford Racing revealed the Mustang Boss 302S, a race car which had remarkably similar features to the Mustang GT-R.
